This week, Success Won’t Wait donated 800 books to the Friends of the Wilmington, Delaware Library, bringing our project total to an impressive 12,000 books since 2015!
The group’s Used Bookshop is located on the first floor of the Wilmington Library at 10th & Market Sts. in Wilmington, Delaware. At the shop, you will find a wide variety of books, CDs, tapes, records and books on tape available. Selections change daily and are offered at tremendous savings: $1.00 for most hardback books and $0.50 for paperbacks. The Used Bookshop is open during library hours.
Proceeds from the sales at the Used Bookshop are used for:
- equipment for the Wilmington Library,
- books and audio-visual materials for public use,
- expenses for Literacy Volunteers of America students and tutors to attend national conferences,
- publicity for Library events and advocacy for Library services, and
- major funding in support of the Library’s “Focus on Quality” Capital/Endowment Campaigns.
And this month, the Friends of the Wilmington Library are even partnering with a group that is sending books to Africa! We are thrilled to be part of this new initiative. For more information about the group and all they do, please visit Friends of the Wilmington Public Library or call (302)-571-7407.
